Book List

The weight of the book sinking in your palms as you read, cold lemonade, breeze.

To be finished by August:
All books by Oliver Sacks
All books by Francoise Sagan
Virginia Woolf's diaries
Madness and Civilization: A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason - Michael Foucault
Anything on Philosophy of Science
The Selfish Gene
The Middlesex - Jeffrey Eugenides
Poetry by Philip Larkin, Ted Hughes, Charles Bukowski (!), Auden
The Real Van Gogh: The Artist and His Letters

Such lavish joy of savouring the remnants of trees and ink, of absorbing past knowledge and intellect and emotions and milieux.

SY a dit…

You're going to read Middlesex! I loved that book... not because of the condition he has but the journey of self-discovery he went through from being a girl to the man he is at the end.

I'll try Foucault's book soon... it might just be helpful for next year ;)
